I use Chrome too now that they have extensions. I don't need 4,000 extensions for chrome like FireFox has either,.........just a few good ones to go along with that Chrome 'Sandbox' design. I'm happy with it.
As far as IE is concerned, you just don't hold onto market share with an inferior product for long. I quit using IE years ago when I realized that for security reasons, "using Internet Explorer is a lot like being slowly pecked to death by chickens".
Microsoft's preoccupation with guiding what we see and how we see it while on the web has got to stop. (It's their way, or the Highway far too often) If they would do some research and determine what innovations We, (the people) are accepting/adopting as they are introduced by everyone, they would spin their wheels far less than they do now. They have ignored web standards for far too long. I don't know if this is from a "we are better than you" attitude because of their artificially obtained market share or an inability to recognize that other web developers are doing great things.
They ARE suffering from a massive Anal-Cranial inversion as far as IE goes,..........
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
While the trend reported by Net Applications seems to be correct, the company's statistical base is both too small and too biased towards websites located in the USA to be able to accurately reflect worldwide browser usage. StatCounter's Global Stats, however, are based upon a network of more than 3 million sites. Their current (20101-01-03) worldwide usage statistics (http://preview.tinyurl.com/yhehqvg) show IE at 53 %, Firefox at 32 %, and Chrome at 6 %, respectively. The browser version with the greatest market share as we enter the new decade is Firefox 3.5 at 22.71 %, followed by IE8 at 22.36 % (http://preview.tinyurl.com/yjtws85). HotHardware might be advised to consider reviewing its decision on which Web metrics company's statistics to report in the future ; more accurate alternatives than those provided by Net Applications seem to be available....
This is really not all that surprising to me. They do have Google behind them
I use Chrome on my netbook and I am loving the addons. Thank god I finally have my Xmarks bookmarks on Chrome.
I love the speed of Chrome. FF has been slowing down for me...probably too many extensions. What are some of your favorite ones?
Now that Chrome/Chromium has well over a thousand extensions and counting - of which I've alread installed some 27 - we'll have to wait and see if the browser's performance will be affected. So far, I haven't noticed anything....
Is there a Chrome equivalent for Noscript FF add-on?
